Many children and young people in the Westman area live in a family where a parent is abused. These children grow up in a “climate of fear.” Family violence is an abuse of the intimate, trusting, and safe relationship that a family should provide. The Women’s Resource Centre offers free counselling to children and youth who are exposed to violence within the family setting. Children and youth may receive individual counselling or attend one of many support groups offered throughout the year.
